Abstract:
Resentment toward the media establishment is on the move – from the far right towards the centre of society. With fatal effect: it turns media criticism and journalism debates into ideologically entrenched battles which in turn lead to reciprocally escalating crises of trust and, subsequently, funding in journalism. An essay on this new power dynamic and a vision of communication in the digital age.

Abstract:
New and diverse forms of media use require consequences for the professional training and education of journalists. Is a radical redefinition of the place of journalism necessary? We see convergence processes that connect public and interpersonal communication intensively which leaves significant traces in the professional field of journalism. There is much talk of the crisis of journalism. Is it a crisis of the framework conditions of journalism in which at long last the precarization of the journalistic profession is reflected? Or are the upheavals results, which are mainly the immense effects of digital memory cultures and storage technologies reflected. Technology development is an essential aspect of the erosion of journalism. But it is also the core of the transformation process. Localization of journalism means asking the right questions: Questions about the relationship between public, editorial and mobilization. Storage technologies are a substantial driving force as well as bridge technology.

Abstract:
During the last 200 years media culture has changed dramatically and with it the participation and use of media by recipients. With a summary reconstruction of the medial and societal transformation processes in that period this paper aims to explain the observation of increasing self-expression, and the disintegration of the private and public spheres. It shall provide evidence, that this behaviour is used as a strategic one, which may enable individuals or users, respectively, to compensate for allegedly lost authenticity in their living environment.

Abstract:
The article discusses the relationship between popular cultures, pop cultures and popular media cultures as transformative educational cultures. For this purpose, these three cultural formations are related to the themes of culture, everyday life, society, education, narration, experience and present. Apart from a few exceptions, such as in youth sociological works on cinema and education, in the context of media literacy discussions or in dealing with media education, educational dimensions of popular cultures and pop cultures have generally not been the focus of attention in media and cultural studies.

Abstract:
Identity construction and privacy are closely connected in both everyday routines as well as in online environments such as social network sites. The paper argues that an overall approach of action theory combined with systemic perspective of dispositif / apparatus can be adapted to get theoretical and empirical insights into identity work and related privacy concepts. Based on situational approaches towards social action, the negotiation processes of self presentation can be described. With regard to online communication and self presentation the technical aspect – understood as a dispositif setting – becomes more crucial then in face to face situations. To understand online privacy an approach of identity construction in every day lifeworld is outlined, embedding online action and attitude.
